Global online learning marketplace Udemy is witnessing a 100 per cent year on year growth in India, which is its second largest market after the US. India also happens to be fastest growing market for the company which has spearheaded its corporate and government centric education programmes in the country over the past one year.
Irwin Anand, MD, Udemy India, tells us, “India is one of our fastest growing markets. And that was the impetus behind setting up operations here in January this year with an aim to nurture this market. Our clients include students planning to get into the workplace and existing employees who need to update their skill sets. We are currently growing 100 pc Y-o-Y in India and we expect the momentum to continue.”
AI and data science, along with web development, cloud computing, IoT and robot process automation are among the most in demand tech courses on the platform. The tech courses contribute to about two-thirds of the company’s revenue.
